Title: ND252, ND253, ND254, NDSAB, and NDSF: Three New Inbred Lines and Two Germplasm Sources of Early Corn
Author: Cross, H. Z.
Description: From 1972-82, the planting of corn in North Dakota was so the increase. Corn yields were up 200% from 1950. The increase was attributed to many factors. However, the two major ones were the genetic improvement of the hybrids and the increased use of fertilizer. The corn breeding program at North Dakota State University dates back to the 1930s and had produced 45 inbreds and four synthetic varieties to serve as the sources of future, improved inbred varieties, ND252, ND253 and ND254, which are yellow dent inbred lines developed in the corn improvement project. NDSAB and NDSF were new synthetics for use in corn breeding programs for the development of further hybrids for extremely short season areas such as North Dakota. The breeding history, the agronomic description, inbred performance, hybrid performance and seed increase and distribution are discussed.
